Bonavita Electric Gooseneck Kettle - $60
Posted by Mark Prince, 2:45am Permalink to this blog entry
Bonavita Kettle

Though the price is up from $50 last year (It's $60 in both Canada and the US this year) this little electric kettle from Bonavita is amazing, and it's still $15 cheaper than Hario's equivalent kettle.

These kettles are considered "de rigueur" for any kind of manual pourover coffee preparation because they allow considerable control over the flow of water onto the bed of coffee. Four years ago, everyone loved a similarly designed Hario kettle because it was the most readily available model in North America, albeit for a price (as much as $70 just for the stovetop kettle a few years ago!); but Hario didn't invent the gooseneck kettle design (it was invented over a century ago for controlled pouring over tea) and today, there's so many more choices.

This kettle heats up extremely quickly, on par with an expensive induction range stove with a stovetop kettle, but in a convenient, electric and cordless format. It can heat up to 1.2l of water (though 1l max is recommended) And takes approximately 4 minutes to go from tap to boiling. It also features an auto shutoff after boil and a 2 year warranty. A great gift choice for any serious coffee nerd.
